It’s pancake day………………

I nearly forgot it’s Pancake Day; the start of Lent. In the Medieval period this was the last day you ate anything of animal origin for 40 days, so Pancakes were the perfect compound to use up milk and eggs.
I replace 3 tablespoons of beer from the quantity of milk in my batter. This gives it a slightly more savoury flavour. Still perfect with lemons and as you can see, my Co. Down lemon tree has conveniently got two. Yes! those two mankie looking specimens. They are ripe and ready, just covered in soot. Our forebears of course grew a lot of their own citrus fruit and I certainly can grow enough for domestic use.
So Brazil gets a carnival and 30C, we get pancakes and 5C. Who said there was no justice?
